    Christopher Nolan Declares War on Motion Smoothing, Other Crappy TV Settings

    For me, smoothing makes the movie/tv show look TOO real! It seems like I'm on set watching them make the movie/show. It doesn't feel like a movie. I love 60fps for Youtube 'real' videos, but movies/tv shows the 24fps I think helps separate it from 'reality'.

    Bitcoin Slide Continues Towards $8K

    I mine(and I game...gaming comes first). Mining profits have dropped significantly in the last month. I only have 1x1080 at this point, because I sold my 1070 2 weeks ago. I'm making PROFIT of about $1.50/day(compare that to $5/day 2 months ago). That would mean a ROI would take 13 MONTHS. I...

    Bitcoin Plummets Below $7,500

There's no generation that has invested at such a young age and learning about the ins and outs of investing. One of the best ways to learn is to fail and learn from your mistakes. So...

    Serious Gaming LCD?? A joke or a reality?

    Hey, I remember when LCDs first started coming out a few years ago I was excited about them, but kept reading how horrible they were for gaming because of screen lag. Well, it's been a few years and I've read here and there about LCDs over the years and it seems like the technology has...

    Thinking of Upgrading..Have some questions..

    Hi! It's been a while since I've upgraded my mobo/CPU combo. As a gamer, all the dual core processors didn't impress me much because most games did not take advantage of them. Only until recently have games taken advantage of multiple cores and it makes sense for me to upgrade. Anyways. I...

    Another ATI vs. Nvidia thread -- x800xt/XL or 6800GT?

    To get the C3D X800GTO to unlock is above 98% and that number is even contested. Basically they all unlock. You are right about overclocking through, some people have bad luck, others good. The X800GTO unlocked to 16 pipes will at the very least do X800XL speeds. -fro

    Another ATI vs. Nvidia thread -- x800xt/XL or 6800GT?

    I'd save your money and get a PCI-E setup. AGP is a dead technology and getting PCI-E will allow you to upgrade again in the future, plus you can get a Connect3D X800GTO and unlock it to 16 pipes, overclock and get performance that rivals the X800XTPE for $160. Best bang-for-buck in a video...
